Toxoplasmosis can remain active in the soil for up to 18 months.
I've worked with children who have been terribly disabled in the womb because their mother contracted the infection whilst pregnant.
I'm well past the age when I might become pregnant, but I use wire netting to keep cats from fouling my vegetable patch. Any 'deposits' found anywhere in the garden are cleared up scrupulously and binned.
